Security

A PHILOSOPHY

Ensur­ing con­fi­den­tial­i­ty and safe­ty of per­son­al data and cus­tomer trans­ac­tions is our num­ber one pri­or­i­ty.

A PROFITABLE FRENCH COMPANY CREATED IN 2008

Weezevent is a French com­pa­ny struc­tured as an SAS (Société par Actions Sim­pli­fiée) with a share cap­i­tal of €72,212. Its head­quar­ters are in Dijon, France and its offices are based in Saint-Denis, France. As any SAS, Weezevent’s accounts are audit­ed and approved by an exter­nal audi­tor, whose role is to assess the hon­esty and legal­i­ty of annu­al accounts issued by the com­pa­ny. In order to do this, he or she assess­es the com­pa­ny’s accounts, finances and risks. We can there­fore state that Weezevent is a prof­itable com­pa­ny sup­port­ed by strong share­hold­ers. With regards to the funds gen­er­at­ed by the sale of tick­ets car­ried out by Weezevent, they are kept safe and in escrow on a ded­i­cat­ed bank account at CIC bank. The pur­pose being to pro­tect all our event plan­ners from both exter­nal and man­age­ment risk. This ded­i­cat­ed account is sole­ly used to col­lect mon­ey from tick­et sales and to pay event plan­ners twice month­ly on the basis of invoices/accountability report­ing. This attri­bu­tion of funds to the cus­tomers can there­fore occur at any time. This finan­cial pol­i­cy guar­an­tees our finan­cial integri­ty as well as that of the event plan­ners who trust us. It is an impor­tant com­mit­ment for Weezevent, pro­tect­ing us from the risks of bank­rupt­cy that have hap­pened to oth­er, less safe and less demand­ing, tick­et­ing com­pa­nies. In terms of IT safe­ty, inter­nal and exter­nal IT audits are reg­u­lar­ly car­ried out and Weezevent con­stant­ly looks to apply all cur­rent safe­ty stan­dards wide­ly accept­ed by e‑commerce and IT stake­hold­ers (https, 3DSecure, SSL, etc.). Per­son­al data con­sti­tutes anoth­er chal­lenge. At Weezevent, we con­sid­er that all data col­lect­ed for our clients is pri­vate. This is why we have put in place strict and spe­cif­ic safe­ty and pri­va­cy poli­cies. Thus, Buy­ers do not have to cre­ate user accounts with Weezevent. This enables us to work, for instance, with the French Data Pri­va­cy and Pro­tec­tion Offi­cers Asso­ci­a­tion (l’Association Française des Cor­re­spon­dants à la Pro­tec­tion des Don­nées à Car­ac­tère Per­son­nel). Final­ly, we con­trol and store data so that you may enjoy it at any time.

WEEZEVENT IS GLOBAL SIGN CERTIFIED

Weezevent has been Glob­al­Sign cer­ti­fied since 2012. Glob­al­Sign is a glob­al cer­ti­fi­ca­tion organ­i­sa­tion pro­vid­ing cer­ti­fi­ca­tion prod­ucts.

The cer­tifi­cate used (SSL Cer­tifi­cate with Web serv­er Extend­ed Val­i­da­tion) encrypts the con­nec­tion with a 256 bits encryp­tion, which is the safest iden­ti­ty authen­ti­ca­tion norm to date. Pay­ment pages in par­tic­u­lar are encrypt­ed before the online trans­fer of date and before the trans­fer from one com­put­er to anoth­er, mak­ing it impos­si­ble to be seen by non-autho­rized per­son­nel. This safe­ty pro­to­col also uses HTTPS norms (instead of HTTP) from www.weezevent.com servers. This is ver­i­fi­able at pay­ment step by look­ing at the safe­ty infor­ma­tion in the address bar of your brows­er. In the event that HTTPS does not dis­play, this may be due to the tick­et­ing sys­tem being direct­ly inte­grat­ed to the Planner’s web­site, how­ev­er this does not jeop­ar­dize pay­ment safe­ty. 

ONLINE TRANSACTIONS SAFETY WARRANTY

Our safe ETP (Elec­tron­ic Pay­ment Ter­mi­nal) enabling online pay­ments with bank cards is host­ed by the IT plat­form of our bank, CIC: Mon­eti­co Paiement. Mon­eti­co Paiement ensures secure online pay­ments using the SSL Pro­to­col for safe online shop­ping trans­ac­tions.

In 2009, Weezevent was grant­ed approval from the GIE (Groupe­ment d’In­térêt Economique or Eco­nom­ic Inter­est Group­ing) to accept bank cards (Visa, Mas­ter­card, CB). We also com­ply with safe­ty reg­u­la­tions (PCI), a strong com­mit­ment to safe­ty sup­port­ed by all cred­it agen­cies. Fur­ther­more, Weezevent was grant­ed approval by Amer­i­can Express in late 2011. All pay­ments car­ried out from the Weezevent plat­forms are chan­neled through Weezevent’s ETP, host­ed by secure servers of the CIC bank’s Mon­eti­co Paiement solu­tion.

Weezeven­t’s tech­nol­o­gy is also com­pat­i­ble with 3DSecure norms, a secure online pay­ment pro­to­col. This pro­to­col was devel­oped by Visa and adopt­ed by Mas­ter­card to increase the safe­ty lev­el of trans­ac­tions. It allows for bet­ter authen­ti­ca­tion of the pay­ment card own­er while car­ry­ing out online pur­chas­es. Secure pay­ment by CIC Bank
